Jurgen Klopp, coach of the English club Liverpool, once again commented on the possibility of his Egyptian star Mohamed Salah moving to the Saudi Professional Football League Rochen.
Mohamed Salah (31) has a contract with Liverpool until 2025 and earns the Reds’ highest ever salary, estimated at around £350,000 a week.
The Saudi Arabian Jeddah club tried to sign Mohamed Salah during the last summer transfer period despite reportedly making an attractive offer of £150 million, but Liverpool rejected the offer.
While the curtain has now closed on the story of Salah remaining at Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp was once again asked about the possibility of Mohamed Salah moving to the Saudi League during the next winter transfer period in January next year.
Klopp responded in response to a journalist who asked him a question: “You’re kidding, aren’t you? A week after the transfer market closes, you’re asking about the January transfer period?”
The Liverpool manager added sarcastically: “Can’t you wait until December to ask that question?”
Jurgen Klopp continued: “I didn’t think about it until you asked me and opened that wound again. I’m not worried.”
Notably, Mohamed Salah joined the Liverpool squad in 2017 from Italian club Roma for around €40 million and has made 309 appearances across all competitions for the Reds, scoring 188 goals and gave 81 assists.
Tomorrow, Saturday, Liverpool will host Wolverhampton in the fifth round of the English Premier League.
Liverpool are third in the Premier League table with 10 points, behind Tottenham on goal difference and two points behind leaders Manchester City.
On the other hand, Wolverhampton are fifteenth in the league standings.
